had a chance now, 3 1/2 years of a president obama administration. you either love it, hate it or you are indifferent. now he has a record. back in 2007, i think that we put him under the microscope -- as we should any candidate, particularly him because we knew so little about him. he wasn't in the public eye for a long time. now, though, i would expect the people are making decisions, are you better off than you were 3 1/2 years ago? is the world safer? do you think we are going in the right direction? those type of questions. his record has a far greater impact than when he said in 2007, but i could be wrong. >> sure, sure. i agree with you. i don't think this particularly speech is definitive, but it's a reminder obenghazi, for example, you have the same pattern of dishonesty in the obama white house that you had in the speech from 2007. the amazing thing is the degree to which the elite media tries to avoid all of this. they didn't cover it in twint 07. they don't want to cover it in 2012. but have you seen literally in 2 1/2 weeks aircraft pattern of breath-taking dishonesty wit
the obama administration deny the consulate in libya for more protection before last month's deadly attack? that is what a house committee alleges and they want answers. leaders of the oversight and government reform committee sent letter to hillary clinton asking why the request for security were denied by washington. they site multiple government officials as the sources. it has threats on facebook that targeted ambassadorsteins. andrea, we are three weeks to the day from the four ambassadors were killed. you have a committee now saying the answers are not good enough. they don't make sense. secretary of state hillary clinton says she will cooperate with congress. the right thing to do. there will be a hearing next wednesday. interesting today when we were talking last night and today, you saw that the press is not letting up on this. in particular, the editorial boards are starting to say wait a second, something does not seem right here. >> andrea: i don't think they could ignore it any longer. it's a shame it has take then long. but the evidence has just been overwhelming. really, cre
that the middle class has been buried under the last four years. of course under an obama administration. and then the response from his challenger, the vice-presidential candidate, paul ryan. take a listen. >> all kidding aside, with all the boos, we can stop all the malarkey, this is deadly ernest, man. this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today, said that the middle class over the last four years has been quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us gre
? why then put in this conspiracy somehow that the books were cooked? if the obama administration cooked the books, certainly the bush administration would have done so in those terrible years when the economy turned, or if someone in the administration has that kind of power. >> yeah. i actually agree 100% with mr. harwood and with tony whose tweet you quoted. you don't have to attack the integrity of the number to attack the substance of the numbers. 114,000 new jobs is nothing to celebrate. it takes 150,000 new jobs every month to absorb new work into the work force. we have 3.4 college graduates this year that need to find jobs and need 150,000 jobs to stosh them and the other people entering the work force. back in 2004 barack obama attacked president bush for a jobs report where 300,000 jobs were created, three times today's jobs. we're celebrating this today, and i think it's unwise. it shows that the expectations are much lower. we have a much lower bar to define success, and i don't think that's good for anyone. i don't think that's good for the american economy or any one of us

? >> he was referring to what he called the weak reaction from the obama administration to the uprising, if you will, in iran, a couple of years ago, when there were protests. people were angry and the u.s. was on the sidelines, the president did not directly speak out and the explanation that the administration at the time gave was that the opposition didn't want this to appear to be the opposition to the ayatollahs, standing up in iran, with the backing of united states. that could have been counterproductive. as a result, the obama administration was pretty silent. at the time now where romney is going after him on that, i think there were a few areas where there were some significant differences, but on the whole, after you get through some of the angry rhetoric, there is a lot of agreement between obama and romney, one area of disagreement on arming the syrian rebels. another area of disagreement, how far will iran be able to go in its nuclear weapons capability, the capability of developing a bomb as opposed to actually having a bomb. and the third was on russia. he twice in a spe

that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st
